When Kate and Chris starting planning their engagement session, they knew they wanted photos of them having fun in places that hold significance to their relationship. Since Chris used to live in the Bloomingdale neighborhood in DC, it was the perfect choice! They have so many memories here. In addition to wandering around the neighborhood, we stopped at Big Bear Cafe, the Red Hen and Crispus Attucks Park. All locations hold special meaning to these two. Especially since Chris proposed there too!
Because they had been planning to get engaged for a while, Kate was a little suspicious when Chris suggested they go to one of their favorite restaurants, the Red Hen, for dinner. Afterwards, Chris suggested they go for a walk. They ended up a few blocks up the street at Crispus Attucks Park, a cute secret park in the neighborhood. He proposed there in a quiet corner, and they hung out to enjoy the moment and call their families.
Afterwards, Chris surprised Kate with a bunch of their friends at a nearby bar to celebrate. Her two best friends from high school who drove down from Boston to surprise her – so sweet!
Congratulations, Kate and Chris! I loved getting to know this part of DC, and I can’t wait for your wedding this year. Enjoy a few of my favorite moments!
